1 STORY OF A MIRACLE
j Wonderful Marks Placed Up
on Girl In an Irish Con
vent While Sleeping.
BY HERBERT TEMPLE.
. London, Dec. 2. A little over two
years ago I happened to be stand-!
lng near Mr. Lloyd George one day
during the arlatlon week at Rhelms
when aviation waa still an unknown
quantity, and heard him exclaim
while watching the mechanical birds
hovering over the grain fields of
Bethany: "I wish that such a specta
cle might also be seen In England."
Almost In the same breath he added:
"And why not?" I Imagine Salisbury
Plain would prove as suitable an aero
drome aa thla " .,
, i The chancellor's wish has now been
in great part realised. Salisbury
Plain Is indeed, developing into one
. of the most Important aviation cen-
' ters of Oreat Britain. Flying machines
are seen dally soaring over the vast
meadows that extend from Bulford
Camp to Knighton Down and the pic-
. turesque old road to Devises. The
' Bristol Aeroplane company have es
tablished a flying school here, and oth
er, aviators are also at work with their
' aeroplanes. What is still more Impor
tant Is that the plain has' been defln
itely selected by the war office as the
headquarters of the aeroplanUts of
the army air corps.
FaVnborough is to continue as the
principal station for airships but the
work of training the army officers and
: sappers to handle the heavier than air
machines will be mainly carried out
on the great, plain near Amesbury. I
am Informed that a company of the
Royal Scots will' shortly encamp near
the war office flying ground and that
eight new sheds will be erected, bring
ing the total of hangars to sixteen.
' Therein will be housed the Paulhan
and Farman - biplanes and the two
seated Blerlot monoplanes ordered
from France by the government.
The most valuable feature of the
army aerodrome here is that it of
fers one of the most extensive course
available in this country. The circuit

aged thirteen, so the story goes, has

ih mast three or four years. She Is
described as a docile, affectionate
child, and Is a great favorite with the
About three weeks ago one of the
sisters heard the child screaming
during the night and when she ques
tioned her the girl told her she had
a fearful dream In which she saw
rhriat on the cross and a soldier driv
ing a lance Into his side. The nun
comforted the child wno leu asieep.
In the morning the child complained
that her wrist and arms were sore.
On examination it was found that her
forearm was marked with a cross In
red. Underneath the cross were the
letters "I. II. S."
A few days later there appeared be
low the letters a crown of thorns.
Two or three days later there appear
ed above the cross letters surrounded
by a scroll. A few days subsequently
there appeared beneath the crown of
thorns a chalice surmounted by a host
sending forth rays in red; and after
the same oeriod there appeared a flow-
er shaped drawing near which was
written the word "Lily.
The marks extend from the wrist
to the upper arm, and have been ex
amined by a number of physicians.
A remarkable feature of the occur
ence Is that at 3 p. m., on Friday the
stigmata bled copiously. A careful

of the phenomena, refrain at present

are not self-inflicted. '

fashion are attempting to force a return to the decidedly ugly styles of
the early seventies. At the races some of the living models costumed by
certain houses wore gowns that might have.stepped out of that unpictures-,
que period. One splendidly tall woman, evidently chosen because her
lines did the greatest Justice to the mode, walked about conspicuously In
a dark blue satin and velvet costume with a -tie-back" sash oversklrt
winding closely about her hips and falling in long, velvet-bordered ends
to the bottom of the skirt.
"With this skirt was worn s real basque, the veritable old-fashioned
basque, fitted with seams, molded to the figure, and reaching about six
Inches below the waist line. Under a line of handsome frogs and buttons
it closed neatly at the throat The sleeves , set closely Into small armholes,
were long and tight.
Another costume, black and prettier, but still of the same period,
showed the round-waisted corsage, with the three seams at the back. A
bertha of fine Breton lace was draped about the shoulders and a wide red
moire ribbon sask was folded-about the slender waist and tied in the
back In a stiff bow with three loops, with hanging long ends. The full,
short skirt was finished with a band of skunk fur.
Fur mantles, too. indicate backward trend of fashion, with their long
points behind coming nearly to the end of the skirt and Square fichu-like
tabs in front. Short round capes just to the waist line are among the
new modes. ,
Powdered tulle or net with chalk or milk-white beads is the very lat
est fashionable fad. Beadwork Is the craze of the moment, and is to
be seen in pale pink and other colors, either on black mousseline over
dresses or on light-colored evening gowns. More often than not the
colored beadB are employed in the same trimming the effects is somewhat
barbaric, but it cannot be denied that in many cases the effect produced
is decidedly picturesque.
The women In Paris are solving the problem of turning an ordinary
linen or silk blouse into something ornate enough for theater dinners, or
other such ocaslons when elaborate dress is not called for. by passing
a bead transparency of black tulle over a light-colored waist. The slips of
black tulle are easy to procure, easy to adjust, and make an effective half
evening toilette for the theater or for dining at a restaurant Panne is a
favorite material for winter waists, and these over-blouses of black mous
seline, beaded elaborately, veil them very charmingly. These blouses
also veil velvet waists, richly embroidered in beads. Very beautiful are
the bead embroideries. In dazzling colors veiled, with the mousseline,
which at once subdues the brilliancy of their hues and prevents them
from ca telling other fabrics, .';.-.-'
One of the novelties of- tfie season In materials is a double-faced
fabric, which offers greaJissibilitles and promises to become extremely
popular. It is on one side a'foautjful cloth, on the other a lustrous satin.
This means that the dresmaker can use both surfaces with wonderful
effect. A' bodice of this fabric can be made of cloth, and the deep Louis
revers. so muctiMn favor just now, can be formed of the same cloth, mere
ly turned back from the front line. This material enables a deep hem
on the skirt to be made by a quick turning up of the gopds. Sleeves
can be faced, or edged with bands that are of- contrasting material, but
are really of nothing but the back of the goods.
